Seize this fantastic opportunity to visit one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Chichen Itza, in its full glory.
- Explore a magnificent display of Mayan culture
- Admire every angle of the Temple of Kukulkan
The name means “At the mouth of the well of the Itza” and is Mexico’s most visited archaeological site, a magnificent display of Mayan culture. The highlight of the site is the Kukulkan Pyramid, known as El Castillo. On this tour you will be able to walk around the pyramid, seeing it from every angle and admiring the work that went into constructing this magnificent pyramid.
The building has remained in place since the time of the Mayans and is a fascinating example of Mayan culture. Mesoamerican cultures occasionally built larger pyramids on top of smaller ones and this is the case for El Castillo, where an excavation discovered a temple with an elaborate jaguar throne. At sunrise and sunset on the Spring and Fall equinoxes, the corner of the pyramid casts a shadow of Kukulkan, a feathered serpent god, creating the illusion of a snake slithering down the North side with the sun’s movement.
Of course there are natural beauties to see at Chichen Itza, such as the Cenote Sagrado, an impressive sinkhole gateway into an underground body of water which is 60 metres in diameter. The Chichen Itza is one of Mexico’s most impressive sites and, as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, it’s an experience which is sure to not be forgotten.
